Heads Together, a mental health awareness campaign started by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, was named the Charity of the Year for the 2017 London Marathon -- which meant Will, Kate, and Harry were at the race to support their team's runners with cheers and high-fives, handing out water bottles and giving out medals. As the royals work to expand discussions of mental health and remove the stigma surrounding it, runners shared their support for the cause. "The race is over...but the conversation that we want to start is just beginning," said Heads Together team member Sean Fletcher.

Before the start of the marathon, Will, Kate, and Harry posed for this group shot with runners from the Heads Together team.

Runners waved from the course as the trio cheered them on from the stands after sounding the official start of the race.

As a few marathoners turned away from the course at the Cutty Sark cheering point to shake hands with William (and with Kate's blue foam finger), Harry tells them to, "Go, go!"

Runners rehydrated with bottles of water that Kate handed out four miles from the end of the race.

As the race ended, Will, Kate, and Harry congratulated runners and helped hand out medals.
